Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Bourdain is a great observer, and his profane dialogue should come with a warning: this plate is hot.” People
“A prodigiously self-assured first novel…The author’s comic vision goes beyond original. It is deliciously depraved.” New York Times Book Review
“The combination of fine food and sordid slayings makes an irresistible novel, but perhaps not one to savor while dining.” Booklist
“Bourdain presents a savory portion of gangster tartare spiced with salty mobspeak, coked-up chefs, wild entrepreneurs, and foul-mouthed feds, served up in the colorful ambience of Manhattan’s Little Italy…The cast of this dark-humored, street-smart novel romps through Greenwich Village and Little Italy on a testosterone high in a perfect send-up of macho mobsters and feebs alike, while the kitchen antics reveal a real love for—and knowledge of—cooking.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Kaleo Griffith makes the most of the main character, Tommy Pagano, letting the listener feel his emotions, which range from whining to desperate. Griffith’s quick tempo keeps the pace of this crime caper moving forward through the back alleys of the Bronx and Brooklyn. He conveys the danger inherent in this male-dominated world in his delivery of realistic dialogue and steamy sex scenes.” AudioFile
